Sorry to hear about
your fall... BUT, glad there's no serious damage.
As you mentioned, pain stresses the body, the entire body - that goes for the guts too. A major trigger for IBS is stress.
And yes, pain meds can cause constipation. Have you thought about
taking 1/2 a dosage? Or maybe going for something OTC instead (aspirin, etc.)?
Hope you get to feeling better soon.
